Top Gear has upset the Mexican ambassador by making rude comments about his homeland.

Richard 'The Hamster' Hammond stated that a car made in Mexico, the Mastretta, was "just going to be lazy, feckless, flatulent, overweight, leaning against a fence asleep looking at a cactus with a blanket with a hole in the middle on as a coat."

His co-presenters, James 'Shit Hairstyled Beer Seller' May and Jeremy 'The Twat' Clarkson also described Mexican food as "refried sick".

Clarkson also stated that he was confident he would not receive any complaints about their comments because the Mexican ambassador would be asleep. Yes, I can see why he thought that as that's my status within minutes of Clarkson appearing on my TV.

However, surprisingly, the ambassador wasn't asleep and has complained.

Last week, Top Gear won a National TV Award for most popular factual show. Who votes in these competitions?

But, more intriguing, where's the uproar? Presenters making flippant, rather stupid and ignorant remarks should be hauled over the coals, shouldn't they?

I'm sure they won't be getting any golden balls of chocolate delight at the Mexican ambassador's reception.
